OKAI has just announced several new products, including the OKAI ES800 off-road scooter, which is significantly more powerful than most standing electric scooters.
The company describes the OKAI ES800 as a “new type of scooter” for off-road driving.
With a continuous output of 1,000 W, the high-performance motor delivers a peak output of 1,800 W.
The high-torque motor is designed to help the ES800 fly up gradients of up to 35%, and the dual suspension should ensure that the ride remains relatively smooth along the way.
The ES800 rolls on 12-inch off-road tires and has wheels with a larger diameter than typical street scooters. The larger wheels and the suspension with long travel ensure better off-road driving on different terrain.
The 980 Wh battery offers more capacity than most street scooters, which is a necessary design consideration when driving off-road.
Even fast driving quickly eats up the battery, and the top speed of the ES800 of 60 km / h (37 mph) can certainly be classified as “fast”.
The company did not disclose the weight of the scooter, but stated that it is “30% heavier than most e-scooters, so you can have a smooth and stable ride on any terrain”.
The company is also launching the new ES600 electric scooter designed for sharing companies such as Lime and Bird. The lighter electric scooter is equipped with a 350 W electric motor with continuous output, which requires a peak output of 700 W.
As OKAI explained:
“The OKAI ES600 was developed to meet the needs of the rapidly growing global scooter sharing industry and hits the spot in terms of efficiency, durability and ease of use.”
The ES600 uses a replaceable 700 Wh battery system, which enables sharing companies to simply swap out a freshly charged battery instead of bringing the entire scooter back to a depot for charging.
While many shared electric scooters use rigid frames for simplicity and robustness, the ES600 offers hydraulic suspension for a smoother ride.
The front wheel measures 12 inches in diameter while the rear wheel is slightly smaller at 10 inches.
Front and side LED lights and indicators are included to improve visibility and attract the attention of vehicles on the road.
OKAI has been a major invisible supplier to scooter sharing companies for many years.
When presenting its new models at Eurobike 2021, the company told Electrek that it had started launching new products under its own brand to expand into both the commercial and consumer markets.
The newly launched models join the other recently launched private label models from OKAI.
We do not yet have any information on pricing for the ES800 model, and the ES600 is designed for commercial use only. But OKAI has other consumer electric scooter models starting as low as $ 300, as well as the adorable seated electric scooter known as the Beetle, which retails for $ 650.
